[Plugin: JW Player for WordPress – Flash & HTML5 Video Player] How to force HTML5 mode? (5 posts)

    Hi there!

    I just bought a license of the JW Player and installed it with this plugin on my website.

    How can I force HTML5 mode with the fallback to flash if HTML5 is not possible?

    Thanks,
    jackennilsen

    @jackennilsen,

    This currently isn't possible via the WordPress plugin although we plan to add a toggle in an upcoming version.

    The choice to use Flash as primary is largely a result of the fact that the Flash version of the player is still more feature rich, particularly in the case of plugins.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick answer.

    Would love to see this in the next version, as I mostly paid the 70 Euro just to add HTML5 videos to my website. :-(

    @jackennilsen,

    I'll be sure to add it in.

    I would just like to mention that it will currently fallback to HTML5 in the event that Flash isn't available (eg. someone visits your site with an iPad). So you are getting HTML5 in cases like that.

    Thanks.
